Orange beer, nice head. Floral & citrus aroma slams you big time. The cascade hops rock this beer, with initial sweetness giving way to big bold bitterness all the way down. Good stuff, not for the faint of heart.

Growler. Super-solid IPA. Pours a nice, light orange-gold with a fine white head. Heavy aroma of bitter hops, noting pine and citrus. Flavor is a hop roller coaster: exciting and exhilarating. (None of the experience made me want to hurl, mind you.) Very mild hints of malt. Alcohol is almost undetectable. Bitter, crisp, lip-smacking finish with lingering hops on the tongue. Really, really good.

Bottle. [thank you, after4ever]
Hazy darkish golden with a staying, frothy, off-white head. Good lacing. Nice hoppy aroma. There is pine, grapefruit, caramel, malts, grass. Great frothy mouthfeel, wonderful dryness, medium to high carbonation. Elegant hoppy flavour. There is a great deal of pine, sweet maltiness behind it. Some grapefruit and grassy notes. Long, lingering, dry, ashy, hoppy aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: Golden straw color with a small, very small, amount of white foam that dissipates quickly. Not much carbonation to speak of.
S: Lots of citrus, most notable is lemon. There is also a mild pine scent. Not much malt to speak of.
T: A wonderful and powerful bitterness. Very piney, but also slight lemony notes. Again, not much malt shining through.
M: Very crisp beer with a lingering bitterness.
D: Highly drinkable, but watch out for this one, it will bite when you’re not looking at 6.9%.
